Four Men Convicted in Synagogue Bombing Plot

Four men were found guilty today of planning to bomb a synagogue and Jewish center in New York City and also planning to shoot military planes with missiles.

From the New York Times:

A jury of six women and five men in Federal District Court in Manhattan deliberated for eight days.

The four defendants — Onta Williams, Laguerre Payen, James Cromitie and David Williams IV — face up to life in prison. Mr. Williams and Mr. Payen were found not guilty of one charge, attempting to kill officers and employees of the United States.

Prosecutors said the men, who all lived in Newburgh, N.Y., willingly cooperated with an informer working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation who posed as a terrorist and supplied the men with inert bombs and Stinger missile tubes.
